The UK Intellectual Property Office is holding a UK-wide intellectual property roadshow run by Tom Duke, the UK’s IP Attaché to China.

The annual China IP roadshow will run from 18 to 20 September 2017 and this year will visit Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leeds, Barnsley, Liverpool and Manchester.

Based in the British Embassy Beijing, Tom supports over 200 UK companies each year to protect and enforce IP in China. He will draw on this experience to provide practical advice on a range of ventures in China, including exporting, manufacturing, investment (in China, the UK and third countries), collaborative research, technology licensing and creative projects.

China IP Roadshow events are open to large and small business, and cover all industry sectors. The events will cover all major aspects of IP: patents, trade marks, designs, copyright and trade secrets. All sessions will be interactive with opportunities to comment, ask questions and network with other participants.

The dates and locations for each city are provided below, along with links to further information and registration pages. All events are free of charge.
